The boys tennis team is headed to the final four of the division three state championships with a win Saturday over Apponequet Regional High School.

This is the third year in a row the team has reached the semifinals. However, the fifth seeded Vineyarders came into the match underdogs after losing to Apponequet twice during the regular season by a score of 3-2.

But on Saturday at Somerset-Berkley Regional High School, the neutral site playoff site, the Vineyard squad turned the tables, winning the match 3-2.

“Caleb really stepped up,” head coach Nicole Macy said. “He worked really hard with our other coach Jon Bates to get ready for the match.”

It was a hard fought win for Dubin, taking it in two tiebreaker sets 7-6, 7-6.

“His first set took as long as all the other full matches,” Coach Macy said.

“Everyone really stepped up,” she continued. “The whole team.”

The other wins were notched by Kert Kleeman at third singes, 6-1, 6-0, and Kyle Levy and Otis Forrester at first doubles, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4.

When first doubles, a win the team was counting on, dropped the first set, Coach Macy said she had to do some deep breathing.

“Everyone was biting their fingernails it was so exciting,” she said.

Zak Potter lost 6-0, 6-0 at first singles, and the second doubles team of Henry Wansiewicz and Tommy Flynn lost 2-6, 6-2, 6-7.

“Zak played an unbelievable wall,” Ms. Macy said.

The team meets top seeded Weston in the semifinal match, to be played Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Somerset-Berkley Regional High school.

`“That will be the biggest fight they have faced this year,” Coach Macy said. “We will need all the positive vibes we can get.”
